Yes, this is my first time purchasing bare minerals foundation but I am not sure which start up kit to choose,is there some way i can get some advice?
I have light skin tone but I have black spots under my chin and on my neck because I have hair bumps on the right side of my face. I also have dry and oily skin, plus in the summer time i sweat in my face. I've been having a really hard time finding the right foundation and I want a really good concealer to cover my dark spots. I need advice and help big time!!!! I don't wear make up that much because I can never find a right foundation. And I feel naked without it. Thanks, Melissa.
I use Bare MInerals and I have: Dark circles, acne scars, red zones, normal to dry skin, and I sweat in my face in the job I do.
I would recommend the New Customizable Get Started Kit, in the Original Foundation. I would not recommend ordering online if thats what you're intending, because choosing a shade is very difficult if you can't try it on your face. I would recommend going down to your local Bare Escentuals Boutique and having them do a shade match/make-under. They are usually very helpful, especially if you just give in and tell them you're really lost, giving up, and just need help (basically what I did, I was battling 20's acne at the time, but not anymore! -Thanks to BE). As for your black spots, I would recommend their "Correcting Conealer, in whatever shade matches your skin best. I put mine on AFTER my foundation, don't know why, but it seems to do better that way. In the summer I would recommend having your foundation & brush on hand as it's not the most industrial of foundations, but it is very healthy and good for your skin, and you can reapply as needed during the day without it looking 'cakey'.
I hope this helped you!
